Taste The Poison
Abstinence works for me,
not for them.
Intolerance, far worse
things ?
This makes no sense.

Get high on me and mine
Take the poison.

Raise a voice ? The art of
making noise
Attacking stance ?
Fist in face for personal
choice

So whithers ? Self, self,
self
Take the poison.

Two polluting lifestyle
doctrines in defence
Re-access the threats to
well bring
Re-direct
And clear your heads

Dialogue (is) a powerful
drug ?
( (not) a verbal poison.

Abstinence works for me,
not for them.
Intolerance, far worse
things ?

Take the poison.back to top
Next On The List
Next on the list ?

Such a smug parasite
Smug in a comfort zone
We stepped back and
watched
while you vidated
our effects, our spirits, our
souls

Opportunist scum ?
Think you're so immune ?
Opportunist scum ?
We yearn to see you
removed
Opportunist scum ?
Truly spineless cint
Opportunist scum ?
Back in this lonthsome glas

Where once I was passive,
I'm ready to snap
A pound of flesh for those
that you've taken
That smiling surround can't
shield you forever
When it slips, we'll be there
to fuck your world !

A slap in the face
A slap in the face

Don' tturn your back, don't
lower your guard.
or assume you're safe
among fellows sharks
'cause whan I catch that
patronising smirk
(it) strenghtens my will
to smash your worthless
buck

A slap in the face
A slap in the face
A slap in the face
Goodbye to logic for this
neccesary justice
Goodbye to logic for this
neccesary justiceback to top
Constitutional Hell
Everything fits nicely into
place
Higher powers take the lead
Middleman sits pondering
his worth
One great scheme to stem
(the) objective urge

Decision-making
And power playing
One-upmanship

Show of hands
To clasp the myth
Vote in a new scourge

Everything fits nicely into
place
Higher powers take the lead
Issues are decided
before we've chance to
think
And moral high ground
wins the day again

Decision-making
And power playing
Principles spurned

Show of hands
To clasp the myth
favours for my friends

It's a constitutional hell
where they pontificate and
yell
where etiquettes out play
integrity
It's a constitutional hell

Everything fits nicely into
place
Higher powers take the lead
I'll sum up on all the good
you've done this earth

Nothing ! !HE POISONback to top
Vermin
The rats on / this earth /
have nothing on you
An insect / to those which /
crawl the sewers

Devourer, Plunderer,
deceptor

Sniff out a / scheme / and
leave the scraps behind
voracious ? Insatiate ? A
nose attuned to greed

Devourer, Plunderer,
deceptor

Evade all traps
And come out gnashing,
snarting,
gnashing, snarting !

Disguise are many
Media palm or man in the
street.

They'll scavenge your
emotions
and leave you diseased
They'd steal a last
possession
and smile as you concede

Devourer, Plunderer,
deceptorback to top
The Volume Of Neglect
Speculate freely
Begrudge me intensely
Lacking a conscience
Lacking intelligence
Lesser than nothing
Lower than everything
As you drain our vitality
to a mundane reality

A form of therapy
without compensation
A vague psychology

Free from obligation.
Intercept the negligence
Accept the consequence
Amongst Barbaria
Mass hysteria

Opposite in a sign to abide
when the future is ours to
decide
We continue to watch and
observe
Just to find out what
purpose it serves

Paralysed ? A spectacle /
for all to see
Hapiness within our grasp,
but out of reach

Volume of neglect
forcibly expressed
Volume of neglect
forcibly expressed

Devastate a silhouette ?
Calm and serene
Abandon / a systematic
insane routine

Volume of neglect
forcibly expressed
Volume of neglect
forcibly expressed

Opposite in a sign to abide
when the future is ours to
decide
We continue to watch and
observe
Just to find out what
purpose it servesback to top
Thanks For Nothing
Serve my head on a plate
Pulp my heart with ill will
I did trust you,
let to lust you, to be duped

Thanks for fucking nothing
!
Serve my head on a plate
Pulp my heart with ill will
Sensed a mystique ? Turn
to spent air ?
Killed it dead

Thanks for fucking nothing
Scap the dephts to salvage
something
Thanks for fucking nothing
Drained my all, then drop
the bombshell

True, we were not joined ?
Our evey feature spliced
Though you rushed in and
took a lead
Three words spouted

This contagion
Crossed all divides
Caused a shift in
protective focus

Three words flouted

Unnntimely end, I
should've clicked ?
A sensory cut-out
A spoiling of the harmony,
of which we were about
I don't despise or
demonise,
But I just know your form
Walk right out and move
along,
and teap before you look

Thanks for fucking nothing !back to top
Can't Play Won't Pay
Ten years
of all-sides sniping
fairness under fire

Ten long years
Rubbished objectives
Two-pronged shower of
bite

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high roller

Suited
and heftity booted
So casual and concerned

Network
makes the acquaintance
dance to soulless tunes

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high roller

Get this prick away from
me
Smash him and the
leeching clique

Fawning grin that pulls you
in
Golden windshake on the
take
Get this prick away from
me

(We're) enemies of the
music business
You corporate fuck !
Enemies of the music
business
Black sheep on the cust
Enemies of the music
business

Ten long years
Still didn't finish us
Much to their disdain

Ten long years
Regained the impetus
Thorns in cash-whores
side

Dirt / is now scrubbed
From our own doorstep
But / around every corner
Hides a high rollerback to top
Blunt Against The Cutting Edge
Blunt / on the cutting / edge
This is a stylistic disaster
Or so I'm told
Won't meet your estimations
Do well to fold
Can't keep up
to the (dummy) run
Am I redundant ?

Integrity dressed down
By the cuts of their threads

Nice and neat
(with a) sideline in grief ?
I'll say inkempt

A real cutting edge is the
scourge of the norm
for all the angst, you're
tantrum-fuelled dolls

Abrasiveness a
convenience
sell for a score
come up clean doing the
dirty
cut and run, then dissolve

Mould in motion
see straight through
transparent you

A real cutting edge is the
scourge of the norm
for all the angst, you're
tantrum-fuelled dolls

I'm blunted, I'm blunted
against the cutting edge
Sharpeness diminished
through truth to myself

I'm rusted, I'm rusted
against the cutting edge
Sigh-times cloud over when
met with pretence

Together,
Drop the act !
Drop the act !

I'm blunted, I'm blunted
against the cutting edge
Sharpeness diminished
through truth to myself

I'm rusted, I'm rusted
against the cutting edge
Sigh-times cloud over when
met with pretence
Drop the act !
Drop the act !back to top
Cure For A Common Complaint
So drawn ? I warm to the
the fire in their hearts
This ain't romantic
gesturing
It's a hand to / head the
charge

To the indifference of the
preening, idle rich
Such champions are
cancerous ?
Tumors in the gut / of
affluent bliss

Why let this scab
observers
tag them troublemakers ?
It's naive ?
You're on a leash.

This is a cure for their
common complaint x2

Ditch the gullibility
Strike 'til the green runs
dry
Bring them to their knees
Or squander as they thrive

Reject the cure for their
common complaint

On break
Agitate !

Hoist those standards,
arm-in-arm
Walk the walk and talk the
talk
Agitate ! Agitate ! Agitate !back to top
A Necessary Evil
I dissolve to a dream of the
past
Terminate. To remove.
Falling fast.

At the end of the chain
thoughts collect
Execute. A degree. I defect.

What's it worth ?
Sacrifice the earth. It
bleeds.
Meet your needs.
Devilish deeds.

Reconcile. Understood.
Contemplate.
Desecrate. To denounce.
Detonate.

Tentative. To reject.
Overdue.
Final stage. Tocomplete.
Follw through.

Far too late.
Absolute hell ? This hell.
An empty shell.
Desolate cells.

A necessary evil ?
Bargaining pleas.
held at ransom ? our souls
diseased.
A necessary evil ? The
dominant role.
There's no escape ? You
crossed the solitary line.back to top
CONSERVATIVE SHITHEAD Part 2
Tiresome / -out-grown /
rebel's seen the light.
Re-a / djusted ? Dissolved
his stauch defiance.

The Anti-Christ shifts to the
right.
He wears his 'X' and
reviles mine
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears
Music to righteous ears

Moved out of / step-seeking
distorted views .
Slack-brained soundbites
serve his public slop
Decries our values in
decline.
But should we starve, then
that's just fine.

Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Knee-jerk reactionnary.
The Anti-Christ shifts to the
right.
His past a convenient
oversight.

Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Knee-jerk reactionnary.
Decries our values in
decline.
He'd flick the switch and
watch us fry.back to top
Mechanics Of Deceit
Cloacks of sickness /
keeping us sweet
Delusional blackness /
fictional madness
Visionary blackness / traps
are set
Revolting mind doors
conspiring our downfall

Which came first ? The
lies or deceit ?
Why did the suffering
cross the divide ?
The dealer sold his soul /
to hide
And left us on the other
side.

The business lessons for
which we burn
Desolate loops in which
we turn
Saga of fools, a voyage of
trust
No contracts bound.

Gathering dust
Which came first ? The
secret or the crime ?
Where does the loyalty
cross the line ?
The dealer sold his soul to
hide
And left us on the other
side.

Tranquillise our denial
Vengeance is mine
Capitalize / on regret
Kick aside what aspires
Vengeance is ours
Our defence won't expire

Eat-the-shit with-a-smile
don't-be-frail
Our word is bond.
Face the wall ; fill the
mould that we take
And break with our hands
Sign the line ; it's your life
Don't be squeamish
Take he time, take the
sweat
Clock back your tongue

Mechanics, mechanics,
mechanics of deceit
Glorified, butchered,
bathed in malice
Sign the line ; it's your life
Don't be squeamish
Take he time, take the
sweat
Clock back your tongue
Eat the shit with a smile
don't be a frail

(The Public Gets) What The Public Doesn't Want
Name your price for
progress
Impoverished settle the
bill
Clear a path - coming
through !
Clear a path - coming
through !

Stylise
Make it easy / on the eye
Keep our distance -
too under-formed to grace
the 'sublime'

Flatter to deceive
Building arthouse
cosmetics
Like a mismatched
prosthetic
Like a mismatched
prosthetic

Spreads llike wildfire
Burgeoning yuppie nirvana
Highbrow aesthetics
Decadents always crave
more

Marvel at / the sleek
design
The wilting talk / of curves
and lines
A piece-de / -resistance
To Banish my
pig-ignorance

The public gets / what the
public doesn't want
What use is this / to man or
beast
It glosses over / basic
needs

The public gets / what the
public doesn't want
Access denied ? we're
utter philistines
Access denied ? we're
utter philistines

Caged in / the exclusion
zone
Pass away / in sepia tones
Access denied ? accept
we're cultural slime
Access denied ? accept

Fracture In The Equation
Battered frantic, dressed in
tragedy
Reach the point where
time's caught up ? Why me ?
Paths we choose, the
sorrows we cause.
It's all forgotten instantly as
pain calls.

Just a fracture
In the equation of designs
Self-destructure
Drawing out life

Neutral unknown, a nervous
calm
Answers tactically arranged ?
Stalling time.

Just a fracture
In the equation of designs
Self-destructure
Drawing out life

Second chance.back to top
